However, someone who claims non-existence of something can only prove it by looking everywhere on earth and in the universe. And this is impossible. So we can say, non-existence cannot be proved. To reach such a term (that is, to reach God) one would always have to resort to principles that are truly metaphysical.” The best that something like intelligent design can do is to show that there is a designer. It does not show the designer to be separate from nature, or a single being, or that the universe as a whole was created.

He currently serves as the director of the US National Institutes of Health. According to Anselm, it is correct to speak of God as both compassionate and as not compassionate but in different senses. Descartes's first proof for the existence of God was based on the principle that. a cause must be at least as great as its effect. Locke argues that the state of nature has laws of nature that oblige everyone to.

    Although some at the conference had the naïve belief that “[g]iven time and persistence, science will conquer all of nature’s mysteries” (Reilly, p. 7, emp. added), it is encouraging to know that at least one person alluded to one of the greatest proofs for God’s existence—the moral argument. That concept of God is based upon the Suzerain model. The argument does not assume a set of rules but a more organic relation. The point of inference does not turn upon a set but upon one central, simple, and elegant idea that frames and grounds the metaphysical hierarchy in .

Much of philosophy is an exercise in some form of metaphysics and we all have a metaphysical perspective because we all have some opinion about the nature of reality.

The evidence for the existence of God is available. For honest enquirers there are honest answers. For those who acknowledge that there is at least reasonable evidence (even if not all 5 points of evidence are accepted) then they can no longer claim to be “atheist”.

As the director of the National Human Genome Research Institute since — what some call the most. While writing "God in Proof: The Story of a Search from the Ancients to the Internet," I found that proofs about God through history reveal a lot more than they're given credit artifacts from a lost time dug up from the ground, these proofs offer glimpses into how people imagined their place in the universe and their chances of knowing anything meaningful about the divine.

Although many have attempted to prove God’s existence, what they end up with is mere arguments.
